Eugene Vindman: Trump is an Aspiring Dictator

1/23/2024
Eugene Vindman is a former Army Colonel and prosecutor who is running to represent Virginia’s 7th district. In 2019, While serving as the National Security Council’s senior ethics officer in the White House, Eugene Vindman’s twin brother Alex, who served on the NSC, alerted him of Trump’s infamous call with President Zelensky of Ukraine, and together, Eugene and Alex Vindmand reported that call. That incident led to Donald Trump’s first impeachment, and both of the Vindman brothers were fired for blowing the whistle. In this interview, Eugene tells the story of blowing the whistle, discusses his campaign, and gives his insight into Trump and the 2024 election. He had this to say about a second Trump administration: “Donald Trump is a petty dictator that aspires to one day be a major dictator. His role models are folks like Kim Jong-un, Xi, Vladimir Putin, who he has some sort of love fest with. It's hard for me to understand. I grew up in New York City, and so Donald Trump was sort of this perennial clownish figure. that nobody took seriously in New York City. And so I've never taken him particularly seriously. He thinks that he's funny when he makes some of these claims and he likes to test the waters. But what he's talking about is deadly serious. There are attacks all throughout the country on Jews, on synagogues, and anti-Semitism has spiked. The extremist right, white supremacists, have found a voice, have been bolstered by him. And it's extremely dangerous. And I've never been cowed, which may not be surprising after 25 years in the Army, by folks coming at me on social media, but I am concerned.” Visit smileactives.com/boats today to receive a special Buy One Get One Free offer with AutoDelivery plus Free Shipping & Handling.
